I have a gnex and I like it, a lot. These windows phones coming out look pretty cool and their just now catching up with some hardware specs us android users are used to. What do you guys think of these windows phones? Im curious to know the app development for the OS. Thats the only thing keeping me away. Your thoughts?

Good for you.

Have a look at windowsphone.interopabilitybridges.com

Many articles point out as more users move to the Windows Phone platform, app devs will move over as well.

Definitely shows promise, but I'm locked into Android for the time being.

Just pulled out my HD2, which has WP7.5 on it (giving to my bro for a loaner), and it is a slick interface. Zune may have flopped, but it is just nice to use.

But, I'm Google-locked for now.

Not even remotely interesting. User interface is atrocious.

Beautiful phones softwate and hardware wise. Run extremely smooth especially the lumia 920. I like android for the freedom but if i had to choose a business phone it would be a windows phone 8 device. Apps are still far behind as their new. If you dont play games tho then they have apps for everything productivity wise.

Lumia 920 looks pretty nice. I have an upcoming hardware upgrade and since I'm buying the Nexus 4 outright, I'll upgrade to the Lumia to give it a try. I hope that Microsoft won't pull another Windows Phone 7 not upgradable to Win8 thing.

I have always thought the same way. It looks very nice as a business phone especially that Windows OS is mostly used in offices at organizations so it should pair and integrate better with Windows Phone I guess, however, they seem either more expensive or same price to high-cost Android phones, so this makes it harder to pick a WIndows Phone if I can get a similar specifications running Android which will also fit well as a business phone
